TAC Artist Focus
Martha Denham - "Many Blessings" Series
Words and Art by Martha Denham
“From the origin of a flower's name to its distinctive characteristics and rich mythology, flowers are infused with symbolism and meaning.” Flowers have always been a part of my life as my mother grew cutting flowers and hybridized gladiolas. The series “Many Blessings” presents a variety of flowers created with pine needle coils, sculpting material, paint, and raffia woven pedals and leaves. Each flower describes a single blessing.
